Possibly one of the coolest uses of an old Flak Tower, Vienna’s Haus des Meers (aquarium).
(The view from the roof terrace should help to explain why the tower can’t be taken down.)
Anna Grace has been spearheading the summer itinerary; hence, the animal and nature theme of the last several posts. This was not our first visit to the aquarium, but always a great way to beat the heat.

 

 

 

 

Seepferdchen, baby sea horses!

Possibly mom and dad?

In a stairwell, a reminder of the structure’s history (“To the air raid shelter.”)

 

 

 

 

 

Dancing Sea Worms

 

 

 

 

 

Oddly enough, we decided on sushi for lunch after leaving the aquarium!
